    I believe it is a harmonic resonance dampener (anti-squeak).

    Ok just wondered what the heck it was on their for. Appreciate the reach out with this vital info. If something ring's would not here it any way because my ear's ring all the time any way. It's called old age or tinites or something like that. Ok runner's keep those bird's running and may be will be able to say I am driving mine.:wave:
